1) Placing chassis at the bottom would obstruct the cables going into the tile cut at the bottom of the rack. Isn't it.


Also, at the low rear side of the rack a patch panel shall be placed. Wouldn't that make it more difficult.


2) The supervisor engine is SUP720-3B

the WS-SUP720-3B is not supported in slot-1 6509E. You must used slot5 or slot6. The reason for this is the backplane architecture.

The chassis is heavy of course. Remove the power supplies and all the modules first off. Mount and fix into the lower half of the rack. Make sure the hot & cold are zones complied with. This will allow you to determine which way the fans will be facing (i.e. towards the front or back of the cabinet). The other point which has already been made - think about when all the cables are in position, how easy it will be replacing a board for example.
